Hi, I am using the following code to scale a flash movie clip which is working but I wish to scale the movie clip by only 20%.

myMC.onRollOver = function() {
    this._x -= this._width/2;
    this._y -= this._height/2;
    this._xscale = 200;
    this._yscale = 200;
};
myMC.onRollOut = function() {
    this._xscale = 200;
    this._yscale = 200;
    this._x += this._width/2;
    this._y += this._height/2;
};

If I try changing the numbers as below it dose not work.

myMC.onRollOver = function() {
    this._x -= this._width/1.5;
    this._y -= this._height/1.5;
    this._xscale = 150;
    this._yscale = 150;
};
myMC.onRollOut = function() {
    this._xscale = 150;
    this._yscale = 150;
    this._x += this._width/1.5;
    this._y += this._height/1.5;
};

How do I adjust the figures to change the percentage to enlarge the myMc by 20% and return to its original size and possition on mouse over?

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

here is the update code to scale movieClip to 120% on rollOver and scaleBack to 100% on rollOut
------------
myMC.onRollOver = function() {
      currentX = this._x;
      currentY = this._y;
      currentWidth = this._width;
      currentHeight = this._height;
      this._xscale = 120;
      this._yscale = 120;
      this._x -= (this._width-currentWidth)/2;
      this._y -= (this._height-currentHeight)/2;
};
myMC.onRollOut = function() {
      this._xscale = 100;
      this._yscale = 100;
      this._x = currentX;
      this._y = currentY;
};
-------------
